I am unable to open my account, it tells me this due to too many redirects

Hi Nigol

Your reference to too many accounts is not clear or specific as to which account your referring to.
Is this the Mac's "User" Account or are you referring to an internet account? "Redirect" makes me think that you are having internet problems. Restart your Modem. Restart your Mac.
But... If your having User Account problems then this may help...
to improve your user knowledge of any Apple Computer's Startup Options........
1. Hold the Power Button down for about 5-10 seconds to force shutdown the computer.
2. Press the Power On button, then immediately hold your finger down on the shift key until you see an icon.
This will be rather slow to start up in "Safe Mode" to test for any extension problems. Give it 5 minutes then Reboot.
3. At Bootup Chimes... hold the Option Key down.
Look for Icon on screen. These will be bootable external Hard Drives or the Apple "Recovery" drive.
Choose the recovery HD. This will give you a vary basic OS X to work with.
Choose the Disk Utility from the top menu. This will allow you to run Disk First Aid. Choose Repair hard Drive and allow time to complete. Then run Repair Permissions and allow time to complete. This may fix your problem.

Hard Drives will always be prone to failures from bumps & jar's while in use.
Protect your investment... Create a full Backup "Clone" to an External Hard Drive (preferably 3.5" SATA Western Digital or Seagate etc)
A "Clone" of your existing hard drive is a Bootable copy of everything on your internal Hard Drive. This is a very wise decision to make. You won't realise it until you need it.
You simply Boot it by holding the Option Key down at Startup.
Then you not only have a running system to get you going, but, you can also run the software "tools" to fix problems.
I Make my "Clone" once a year at least. Also prior to Installing an Update to OS X. Also before Formatting my internal Hard drive to allow a Clean Install of a New OS X.

Macbook pro os x 10.4.11 won't recognize or mount my new Hitachi xl3000

The Hitachi XL3000 is formatted for the PC, but your Mac should recognize it. Try another cable or port. Check in Disk Utility to see if the drive appears. If it does, then you can format it for the Mac. You can do this in Disk Utility by clicking on the hard drive on the left side of the window. Then choose the Partition Tab, and change the Volume Scheme drop-down menu to 1 Partition. Then click on the Option button, choose GUID partition map, and click OK. Then choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for the format and click Apply and OK. Your drive should then format for Mac and mount on the desktop. If it does not appear in Disk Utility after changing the cable and port, or trying another computer, then you may need to return it for replacement. I hope this helps.

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4

STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!

Received JV100 as gift. I'm trying to copy manual CD into my MAC/OS 10.8 laptop. How do I do it?

Part of the problem might be that the latest Mac laptop is Snow Leopard 10.6. You must have a laptop from the future!! :) Just kidding!. When you insert the cd, it should appear as an icon on your screen. You can right-click and choose "copy" and pick your desktop as the destination. That way, it's handy for reference.

Blue screen after logging into adminstrator but no desktop icons?

Start with OS X cd/dvd. put the cd in and restart, hold down C after you turn the laptop on. when the disk starts up, try to repair the hard drive (verify and repair permissions). I'd also try getting your hands on Disk Warrior, which can fix lots of hard drive problems. You might have to reinstall OS X though if it's bad. If you have to do this, you may want to upgrade the harddrive because that might be what caused the problem in the first place. If you go to repair permissions and it finds problems and repairs them. Try it again. If it finds problems the second time, you may have a bad hard drive. See how my answer is longer than your question. It really helps to provide details and specifics if you want a good answer. just keep that in mind if you reply. thanks. good luck.

Imac g5 cant log in get grey screen

Hello, this can be either a software or hardware problem, 
To know this, please try to repair your hard drive by pressing "cmd - S" at startup, that will take you to single user mode. you will see a black screen with unix lines. Here you type "fsck -f" and hit enter. Wait untill the repair is finnished. If it shows problems then you have a hard disk problem. If not, try to reinstall the system using the DVD, and choose "archive and install" option, to keep your files and settings.
